Team Fight Tactics Actually turn to pay-to-win?

So been playing team fight tactics and something I have noticed is higher level avatars move faster win selecting a champion so I got curious as to how to get my upgraded avatar and realized the only way to upgrade them is to spend riot points not blue essence am I the only person who sees this as a problem? Does this mean that this is going to be in ranked?
